Johnny Knoxville Files For Divorce

According to the AP, Johnny Knoxville, nee Philip John Clapp, has filed for divorce, citing ‘irreconcilable differences.’ Johnny Knoxville has been married to Melanie Clapp for 12 years and he is seeking joint custody of their daughter, Madison. The Clapps have been separated since July 2006. It’s amazing that JK has been married for so long and more or less on the DL. The great thing about ‘irreconcilable differences’ as divorce motive is that it can mean so many things. We think it typically means that one or both parties wants to sleep with other people. But it can sometimes mean that one party lives an ‘alternative lifestyle’ or has an $800-a-day drug habit and their spouse loves them enough to protect their privacy but not stay with them. Who knew that Johnny’s real name was Phil Clapp? It sounds like what old sailors would call getting VD while on shore leave in Philadelphia. “I seen Lerlene last weekend; pretty sure that she gave me the Phil Clap.”
